Default Champion 3 x plugs

I know the one is a reproduction base, they both have a round 3 but the brass tops are different . Can anyone tell what these plugs are?

Looks like a full reproduction round 3 x plug, which someone said they never made.

champion made a run of 3X plugs for the 84 national with the round top 3. the electrode goes all the way through, unlike the originals that the electrode only came up under the top cap. when they gave them out at the national they were in a neat little black beg, I have one here somewhere.

Do the flat top 3x's have the electrode going all the way through to the top? I would think that would be a better design.

Referring to the 3X printing on the ceramic insulator. The top of the 3 was rounded like this one whereas the other type had the top of the three, flat.

Are the reproductions still multi-part like the originals? Can they be disassembled?
